If you had the chance to go to Morocco by plane (and on a clear day) and you were seated on the right side (that’s a lot of “if”!), You saw the Strait of Gibraltar. It’s beautiful … and mythical.
If you went there by car, it’s also spectacular: you see two continents at the same time.
It is, of course, a British possession. Since 1704. One year before the death of Louis XIV.
